The idea of a lunch-break peel isn’t new—it’s totally normal by US standards—but given that London has only just got up to speed with blow-dry bars and the like, lunch-break peel seems rather revolutionary.

So far, so non-scary. Peels are even safe for sensitive skin types. Below explains the difference between deep and superficial peels, which acids to look for and how frequently you should do them.

What is a chemical peel, exactly?

A chemical peel is a treatment that uses a chemical solution to exfoliate the skin. Depending on the depth of the peel and formulation of the solution used, chemical peels can also stimulate the production of new skin cells.

How do a superficial and deep peel differ?

Superficial peels only act on the surface or outer layer of the skin, leading to exfoliation, while deep peels penetrate further into the skin and have a more stimulating effect as well as exfoliating.

So, are they painful?

This depends on the depth of peel and the type of peel formulation used. The lightest most superficial peels are not painful at all and may cause little or no tingling. Peels that penetrate more deeply can cause a stinging or burning sensation.

Professional peel vs an at-home product?

A professional peel is carried out by a practitioner who should be trained in the administration of the treatment and have an understanding of the peel being used, which allows them to choose the right type of peel and peel formulation for your skin type. Their knowledge and experience should ensure a safe and effective treatment. At home products can be good for skin maintenance but may not be as potent as professional treatments, and may result in side effects if not used correctly.

Which acids should we look for?

Choosing an effective acid really depends on the individual’s main skin concerns and their skin type. Lactic acid is one of the best, because it tends not to irritate or dry out skin, and is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, but there are other acids that are also effective, such as malic acid and mandelic acid.

How long should we wait before applying make-up after a peel?

For the best results, we would always recommend leaving your skin bare for around 12 hours after your treatment, or alternatively using mineral based make-up. However there are peels designed specifically to create a healthy, ultra-fresh glow before a big event. These type of peels lightly exfoliate to brighten your complexion and there is no redness or no downtime, so your make-up can just glide straight on afterwards. In fact, the treatment creates the perfect skin canvas to work with.

Is it safe to do a peel during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

During pregnancy and breastfeeding, skin can become more sensitive due to hormonal changes, so an enzyme based peel is a good alternative for skin resurfacing and maintenance.

How often should I do a chemical peel?

This depends on the individual’s skin concerns, skin type, peel formulation and time of year. Superficial peels can be used weekly to monthly for skin maintenance while deeper peels should be done less often, and ideally not during the summer or periods of prolonged sun exposure.

Dermapen
Revolutionary Micro-needling Treatment

Normal Price £220

There are many types of skin rejuvenation treatments on the market for those seeking to rejuvenate their skin. While they all have their benefits, there’s another  product out there that’s gaining traction in the Med Spa world. This product is Dermapen, and it is beginning to dominate the cosmetic skin therapy world.

Dermapen is a type of minimally invasive micro needling skin therapy that rejuvenates the skin. It is also known as collagen induction therapy. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Collagen is especially important to the skin as it helps the skin hold its structure – a quality that is important in preventing wrinkling and creases. The Dermapen uses multiple tiny micro-needles, spring loaded and housed in a pen like case to puncture the skin in order to signal the body to produce new collagen to heal these tiny holes. Through this process, skin texture and firmness improve, and many patients experience a reduction in the size of their pores, as well as see the appearance of their scars and stretch marks improve.

The micro-needles of the Dermapen pierce the skin up to several hundred times per minute. Dermapen and micro needling are used to boost skin rejuvenation in a way that is safe, and does not require a lengthy recovery period. The Dermapen is adjustable to use over the entire face, including sensitive areas like the nose, and around the mouth.

Dermapen is becoming a popular option as it requires a very minimal recovery period and yields great results. This combination makes it high in demand.

It is also able to meet the needs of many. Individuals seeking Dermapen treatment do so for a wide range of reasons.

Some want to look younger, while others want to treat areas of hyperpigmentation, sunspots, scars or stretch marks. For some, skin conditions make them feel self-conscious, or embarrassed.

Dermapen micro-needling also treats deep wrinkles and creases both on the face and neck – a situation that some other rejuvenation treatments such as laser skin rejuvenation, chemical peels and microdermabrasion cannot correct.

Some opt to have the treatment on their hands to lessen the appearance of age spots, and improve the appearance of their hands. In addition to improvements in how the skin looks,  improvements in how skin feels are also reported.

Skin tightens and firms as a byproduct of collagen induction therapy. Additionally, blood flow to the site of treatment increase, bringing nutrients and oxygen with it. These vital elements are important for healing and benefit the appearance of the skin.

The number of Dermapen treatments  required depends on the condition of the skin in the area to be treated. Most undergo three to six treatments, with at least a 30-day break in between.

SWiCH Dermal Rejuvenation

Normal Price £120

Trigger Healing

With the SWiCH™ System, it is now possible to achieve repair of the skin without having to induce tissue damage. The body’s repair systems, including that in the skin, are held in a ready state at all times. Understanding what is needed to trigger the system is the key to the efficacy of the SWiCH™ System.

How SWiCH Works

Any repair system requires a large input of energy. This energy source is generated by a natural cycle as part of the metabolism of food. The SWiCH™ treatment is a multiple step process that allows the active ingredients to penetrate into the skin, switches on the repair mechanism, and supplies energy for the repair process to fully complete. While results will be seen in one treatment, a series of treatments (one month apart) is recommended as you can see below.

Results

The results below are achieved after six SWiCH treatments. You can see the more youthful, tighter-skin appearance after just one treatment. After six treatments, crow’s feet are gone, dark spots are lighter, and years have been removed from the face.
